Possibly My Last Evening In Pain

Hey Everyone...
Well I'm sure those of you who know me pretty well know that I've had a lot of back problems since January.  Tomorrow I'm getting an injection in my back.  It's hard to believe that after being in pain everyday 24/7 nonstop for the last almost 9 months that one little shot is going to make it stop.  I have prayed that this will be the relief I've been longing for and I have faith that the Lord will help me.
I just wanted to blog about this so it will remind me to continue to be the person I am now.  I have always been soft hearted but I am more so now.  I have more compassion for the person who walks slow in front of my car at the store instead of being impatient and wanting them to hurry.  I have always been the type of person to let my health go and say...I'll start a diet on Monday or maybe go to the gym for a few months and fizzle out.  I now have been shown that I took the simple task of just getting out of my car and walking into the gym for granted....it can and has been taken away from me in a second.
It's hard to believe that this is my life.  I never imagined not leaving my house for days because I can't.  99% of the time I'm ok...but sometimes I get tired and cry.  It's hard having a stabbing pain in my back all the time.  When I clean my kitchen or run into Walmart for 15 minutes...it takes me days to recuperate.
I know this is going to post on my Facebook.  If you would...please say a prayer that this injection is my answer for relief.  I would just appreciate it so much.  My appointment is at 9:30 tomorrow morning and the injection will be at 10:30.  Maybe you could send some good vibes my way around that time.

  2. These injections work well for so many people. Sometimes offering months to a year of relief. Some never have the pain return. I have already said a prayer for you when I read your post and I hope your is a case book example of what they want for every patient. Living with daily pain stinks. I know because my husband does too. It is just plain hard on the person and the love ones who are hopeless to do anything. In a few days you should be healed from the injection and hopefully doing so much better. Please post on your blog how you are doing, so we can continue to send prayers in your behalf.
